    Finally some silver in 2019

    After alot of searching this year, got a solid roll of roosevelt silver dimes today - first solid roll in way more than 10 years.

    up to this point 2019 has been tough - I posted about this on Jan 18th.

    YTD totals:

    Dimes:
    Had searched $1,335 of dimes to find the first silver.
    Until today, searched $4,075: $1.60 of silvers (3 merc, 12 FDR, 1 1945 can) and a 1987S impaired proof. Silver hit rate was 0.39%.
    After today, searched $4,145: $5.60 silvers: hit rate is .159%.
    I don't search boxes, and I am getting close to not even searching MWR because I have gotten nothing in those.

    Pennies: $324.50 searched: $1.56 wheat, and 4 can George VI (incl one 1938) - wheat % is about .50%
    Nickels: $416 searched: 1 buffalo from 1918 that was nic-a-dated. No war nickels. 2 1938P.
    Halves: $243.50: 3 40%s, 1 Ben, and $2.50 in NIFC. All 40% were from teller trays and the Ben was in a roll.
    Recently been getting someone's dump halves at a number of banks. I searched one box in January and got skunked and keeping with my long-standing practice, I will not box search again.

    Thank you.

    I want to make a correction to my initial post: The % of dimes prior to today was 0.039% (I originally put .39%). After the solid roll it was .159%.

    I also went back to the bank this morning and got more dimes - same teller - got nothing

    After all my years of dime searches, I have yet to find a solid roll of silvers from CWR's. Congrats on your find.

    MAN ALL THAT SILVER LOOKS PRETTY!!!!!
    As I am finding , In life we begin having the Blissful happiness & the Wonder & innocence of a Child, then fall Quickly, then spend the rest of our lives trying to reach that point where we began ,through Pleasure , Fame, & Materials but Only 'Through true faith in Jesus , can we find Prefect Happiness or true Meaning in our Short lives on this Beautiful Earth filled with both the Light of Pure goodness & The Darkness of Pure Evil. D.
